This lovely park on beautiful Queen Anne neighborhood is a definite must. You will not get better views of the Seattle skyline anywhere in the city. It is also a great park with basketball courts and fun playground for kids of all ages. We walked...More

The park is very small with only a few benches and a telescope viewer. I hiked all the way up the hill, which is quite steep, and enjoyed the view but then just turned around and hiked back down. If I gave any advice is...More

Very small viewing area but only average as it is probably the highest visual of the city panorama. More than anything a drive-by photo-op at best.

Absolutely skip the Space Needle view and do Kerry Park! It's easy to get to and the view cannot be beat! Went on a Saturday afternoon and was able to get street parking with no problem. Really worth it!! FREE!

The view was fantastic and there were more people there than we thought, even though it was rather small. There was a park down below and the kids enjoyed it!

This is the best and most iconic view of Seattle! Go with a tour group or take an Uber unless you are very fit! Quite hilly around the park. We saw it on our first stop of Seattle Grunge Tour”

This quite modest park - in terms of real estate - is a hidden gem: this is THE vantage point to best view the Space Needle and the rest of the high-rises in downtown Seattle. Due to the steep slope below the park the view...More

The park is tiny, nothing special, except one thing… THE VIEW! See my photo. You can just sit on the bench, and admire the city, the ocean, the mountains if the skies are not covered by clouds. I spent there quite a while listening to...More

Worth the trek up Queen Anne Hill to see this popular site. This site is what you see on postcards and on popular shows like Frazier, grey’s anatomy and other Seattle based shows/movies. The park is small & in a residential area. There is a...More

Well we just had to see this iconic view of Seattle so drove up to Kerry Park on a rather cloudy, intermittent rainy day. First off, this is a residential area and there is limited parking so make sure you park considerately and don't block...More

A small park with big views. Travelling here is a must, just be courteous to others as it's a small park with limited parking.

Worth it. Favor the right side of the park and arrive at dusk when the city lights turn on. At night you lose Rainier. During the day, the cranes will distract from your image.
